Catholic Relief Services will host a lunchtime reflection on the church’s relief work in the Philippines one year after Typhoon Haiyan on Thursday, Nov. 6 from noon to 1 p.m. at the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center, 222 N. 17th Street in Philadelphia.
Last November the storm struck the island nation causing the tragic loss of thousands of lives and widespread destruction. In the wake of this catastrophe, the Catholic Church was there, joining hands with Filipinos to pick up the pieces.
Caroline Brennan of Catholic Relief Services’ Humanitarian Response team, who visited the Philippines soon after the typhoon, will share stories from her time in the Philippines and provide an update on the current situation.
A simple lunch of soup and bread will be served.
Please RSVP by Nov. 1 to Anne H. Ayella at 267-262-8901 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
